    I worked at University of Rochester Medical Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good health benefits and access to health care.

    Cons

    URMC is part of the problem with degradation of the value of an advanced degree. I have a PhD and extensive postdoctoral experience at esteemed institutions. My last position was professor level ($64K). Before that I was a postdoc ($53K). I was hired at URMC at $42K to do professor level work. That seems to me like the university taking advantage of the hiring glut to underpay well-qualified scientists.

    Advice to Management

    If someone is obviously overqualified for the position of technician, then enforce policies that mandate pay in line with qualifications. Its demoralizing to be paid a BA salary for post-doctoral level skills and training. Don't take advantage of a sinking economy for scientists to pay people less than they made during their training period! It communicates a lack of respect for talent and training. It is an exploitative practice and it's indefensible.
